Kharis Won't Stay Inside-He's Out for Revenge Out of "The Mummy's Tomb"- Tonight!

Posted on by

We hope you are all staying in and staying safe- but-tonight on MeTV- an embalmed import threatens everyone’s safety when he won’t stay in the title enclosure! It's a continuation of  Universal's original Mummy saga- as the thought-to-be dead Egyptian menace is exported to the U.S. to get revenge on those who defiled his beloved's burial crypt- it's a horrid housewarming at Kharis’ new digs in "The Mummy's Tomb"!

This follow-up to the 1940 "Mummy's Hand", released two years later in 1942- but supposedly taking place 30 years after the events of the last film!- opens in Mapleton, Massachusetts, at the home of the Banning family- where the father, Steve, regales his relatives with tales of the battle he and his group had with the living Mummy- ably supported by a heaping helping of stock footage from the previous film ( as fans of the Mummy flicks have come to expect). He feels secure in the fact that Kharis is no more- but- we learn differently as, back in Egypt, the barely surviving high priest who protected Kharis reveals to his protégé, Mehemet Bey, that Kharis has also survived- and decrees that his young follower must take the Mummy to America on a mission to take revenge and kill the Banning family and their associates! He teaches him the traditional formula utilizing tana leaves to keep the Mummy alive and mobile- and then, after an ocean voyage- the new protector of Kharis takes up residence in a cemetery- under the guise of  a caretaker- and revives the Mummy to begin his revenge tour!

Soon, Kharis is eliminating anyone connected to the Banning expedition- but, even with telltale signs of who (or what) is committing the murders, the local police are baffled- even when original expedition member Babe tries to give them the answer. Meanwhile, as often happens in the Mummy series, the priest/protector has fallen for a woman connected with the goings-on - the fiancée of Banning's son- and schemes to use Kharis to make her his own high priestess!

"The Mummy's Tomb" is a fitting sequel to "The Mummy's Hand" (and, to some extent, Karloff's original "Mummy")- and we get members of the "Hand" cast ( made up to look like they’ve been through 30 years rather than 2), along with Turhan Bey as the new priest- and Lon Chaney Jr. as Kharis - a role he wasn't too keen on, due to the make-up! We'll talk about the cast, and, have some tidbits about the production- along with a Sven song, a nice helping of Sven screw-ups from “The Oops Files”- AND- since the movie is short- and you viewers always enjoy it- we've got our compilation of ALL the Svensurrounded "Flash Gordon" segments we've done! We also reprise a special guest hand at the door at the end of the show- so make sure you don’t miss that!

"The Mummy's Tomb" gets unsealed tonight on MeTV at 8 pm eastern/pacific, 7 central, or check for time and channel where you are in your local listings or at . We continue to trend nationally among the most popular topics being Tweeted about on Twitter during the show- feel free to join in, using the hashtag #svengoolie .Our Chicago area viewers can return to the “Village of the Damned” at 11 am on the U.

This is a difficult time for all of us, and that includes our crew. We are doing all we can to make sure we have shows for you every Saturday, while trying to accomplish this all from our homes. We have had a bright spot this past week- as some of our blog commenter friends have mentioned, April 2 marked 9 years of our show being seen nationally on the network. We are so grateful for the support and loyalty of our audience- and offer big time thanks to you all. Thanks also for the kind words about this month’s newsletter. ( If you haven’t already- you can sign up yourself  here on our site- it’s free! Just click on the banner for the newsletter.)

Tonight- stay in your room while Kharis leaves the tomb- to spread doom! ( I’m a poet, and don’t know it!)

Mentioned on this blog is Metaluna. If metaluna is in TIE then maybe I did see this. Was this on Svengoolie about a year ago? Nevertheless it will be a good show.

I don’t remember a year ago, but I thought Sven played tomorrow’s movie in July, but I just checked my DVR recordings and on July 27 the movie was Forbidden Planet, a movie I often get confused with This Island.

Dale is our blog historian but I'd guess it was on about a year ago. Maybe longer.

What's up gabste ? Your beaches still closed ?
gabste Islander 1 month ago
Yep ! Everything's closed ! You can't even go on the beach if your house is on the beach.
Islander gabste 1 month ago
Same here. The surfers try to go out but the beach patrols usually run them off. They are issuing court summons for people on the beaches in Wrightsville Beach now.

I missed the original film THIS ISLAND EARTH adventure on Metaluna, but I did catch the RUFF 'N' REDDY cartoons set on Muni Mula (aluminum spelt backards).

I seldom miss a chance to see TIE on TV. It is 1950s classic sci-fi A feature, a notch above the usual
I see we have another Ruff and Ready fan on the blog ! As a kid I never missed Ruff and Ready on Saturday morning cartoons. I remember Remember Muni Mula I think that is where George Lucas got his idea for the Death Star in Star Wars as for this Saturday's film I think Ruff And Ready got their idea for the Creepy Creature from the mutant in This Island Earth everybody borrows from everybody

Thank goodness it’s Friday. First day I can function after Wednesday when I had both a Prevnar 13 pneumococcal vaccination and a Shingles vaccination and the side-effects knocked me for a loop. I swear I was turning into a Metaluna 👽. I can’t wait for Svengoolie Saturday. I need some Reality TV for humor.

Glad you're feeling better, Klaatu.

Wow, my arm hurt for about 3 days just from the shingles vaccination. Not looking forward to round two next month either.

If Sven did a parody of all in the family would he be Archie?
JournalJeff2 MADave 1 month ago
I think Sven would try to be all of them.
MADave JournalJeff2 1 month ago
That would be a riot
PatS MADave 1 month ago

Let's see -- Rich (without Sven make-up) as Archie, Doug as "Meathead" / Mike, Kerwyn in a frightwig as Edith, Tombstone as Gloria?
MADave PatS 1 month ago
Nah I think Tombstone would be better as the meathead/Mike he's got the mustache

Mine seems to be missing a couple of parts. Anyone have a spare push-pull rod?
MadRich Catbat 1 month ago
I always get mine mixed up with the flux capacitor.

Which is not to be confused with the oscillation overthruster.

(Side note: found my DVD of THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION. Even if the cable goes out, now I'm happy.)
